Overview

At Friday, Eldredge & Clark, we have a highly skilled team of lawyers who understand every aspect of the health care industry – including its unique business, regulatory and litigation needs. We are focused on meeting those needs through the highest level of legal representation.

Our clients’ standards are high, and so are ours. Our Medical Malpractice Group is proud to have the largest group of lawyers in the state dedicated to the defense of health care providers in medical malpractice lawsuits. Not only do we have the largest group, we are the highest ranked – with our attorneys consistently listed in research-based directories such as Chambers and Partners, The Best Lawyers in America and Super Lawyers.

Because of our ability and reputation, we are often called upon to serve as local and regional counsel in major litigation and catastrophic injury cases. Chambers and Partners USA, well known for the strength of its research on listed lawyers, said of our group’s head Michelle Ator: "Michelle is a highly respected medical malpractice defense lawyer...very polished and very good in court.”  

In everything we do, we are client focused. We are privileged to represent the full range of health care professionals including:

  • Physicians
  • Nurses
  • Dentists
  • Hospitals
  • Long-term care facilities
  • Home health agencies
  • Drug and device manufacturers

We know that medical care providers require experienced, respected counsel. We are dedicated to providing our clients with talented, ethical and efficient representation. We recognize the needs of heath care providers. We are personally committed to them, and as a result, are vigorous advocates in their defense.
